Sale Number 1048, Lot Number 362, Washington-Franklin Issues12c Claret Brown, Perf 10 at Bottom (512b), 12c Claret Brown, Perf 10 at Bottom (512b)12c Claret Brown, Perf 10 at Bottom (512b). Neat strike of Waterville, Iowa oval registry cancel, rich color on bright paper, tiny thin speck at lower left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1917 12-CENT PERF 10 AT TOP OR BOTTOM. ONLY TWELVE USED EXAMPLES ARE KNOWN, AND THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FIVE EXAMPLES WITH A REGULAR CANCEL. A GREAT RARITY.

Our census of Scott 512b, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/512b/512b.pdf , contains only twelve used and four unused examples of this rarity. For some reason none is well-centered. Seven of the twelve used examples have precancels. Only one of the five with regular cancel is confirmed as sound (no. 8), but it is off-center in two directions.

Census No. 512b-CAN-03. PFC 7052 no longer accompanies.
